Shine Behavioral Academy is a tuition-based NPO (Not for Profit) 501 (c) (3) organization.
The SHINE BEHAVIORAL ACADEMY provides comprehensive, behaviorally based special education and intervention for children with autism and other developmental disabilities in elementary age students. The educational philosophy is based upon the principles of applied behavior analysis (ABA), with a focus on customization and parent education. Classrooms are kept small for personalized instruction and the number of children in each class is based on the function and abilities of the students within the class itself. Small group as well as 1:1 teaching is available for every child as needed throughout the day.
Parent involvement is essential in order for the child to be immersed in appropriate education and intervention at all times, parent/caregiver will be asked to attend at least one meeting per quarter to review child’s IEP and educational progress.
The course work at The SHINE BEHAVIORAL ACADEMY will be individualized for all students. The program will not be grade determinant, and the students will work at a level commensurate to his/her abilities. We accept both verbal and non-verbal students. Acceptance will be determined by the initial Evaluation performed prior to enrollment.
